. i know you spoke to the democratic leader in the house nancy pelosi. do you get a sense that we're anywhere close to a deal or are we just hearing a lot of happy talk? >> well, you're hearing a lot of happy talk, dan. i think the operative word is "constructive." that's what nancy pelosi talked about. that's what speaker john boehner talked about, constructive, but there's also a lot of urgency. now, nancy pelosi, we have a lot more of this interview, a fascinating interview, only she thought they could work out this deal in mid-december. i asked her, of course, look, we've heard optimism before and this went nowhere. but there is that urgency now. americans are sick of this. this is the second time around. >> and so overnight we saw -- we saw this video of david petraeus' alleged mistress, paula broadwell, his biographer working with her husband, the first time we've seen the two of them since this scandal broke. so let me ask you about the petraeus affair which i know you've been following so closely. where does this go now? what in your view is likely to be the next shoe to d
on nancy pelosi after 20910 elections. >> and mcconnell, interestingly who is the pair gone of the republican establishment has won them over. he made uneasy peace with and paul. it looks to me like mitch mcconnell has wanted to be majority leader since the senate race, ever since then he wanted to be majority leader. now he may never be. things do not look that much better for the republicans two years from now than they do now. he will also face a primary in two years. >> he may or may not. back in 2010 there was a contested primary in kentucky. that caused a bit of a problem for him. people were upset with him. but he has done a lot of work to hug rand paul so close to him and he let him do about whatever he wants to do on the senate floor. when he says i want to go to the floor and cause a big stink about something, mitch mcconnell says go right ahead. he is such a talented politician. he is so smart. in my opinion i think he has done everything he can do to prevent someone -- even if someone wanted to challenge him from the right he has done as much as he can do to keep
don't, because then they would have put nancy pelosi in charge of the house of representatives. >> david, do you buy that? democrats gain in both the house and the senate. the president won the popular vote, well over 300 electoral votes and by big majorities, they told exit pollsters they agree with the president's position on tax policy. >> well, whether the president has a mandate is a matter of opinion. whether he has power is a matter of fact. this president now has enormous power, because of the expiring of all these various tax measures and because of the advent of the sequester. he's in a situation where he's in a doomsday contest with the republicans, but the doomsday bites republican constituencies harder than those of democrats and of course, the president doesn't have to face re-election so even if doomsday arrives he has less to fear from it than the republicans do. so he's in a very powerful position. and republicans are going to have to be very savvy about how they play this. to go back to your original question, about why -- what was the cause of the defeat, we'
: so, that is the latest on that. also this morning, "nancy pelosi considers leaving post as house democratic leader." "the decision could come as early as tomorrow, wednesday." washington journal will be live from capitol hill tomorrow with several lawmakers from 7:00 a.m. until 10:00 a.m. to keep you updated on what is happening this week in washington. the looming fiscal cliff, that is what we are talking about with all of you today. how do we avoid it, should entitlement spending be part of the package? james, go head. caller: i had to retire because of back problems or whenever, but i do not get disability, i would not apply for it, it is an entitlement. it is ludicrous to ask people in my age bracket, people who pay for their medicare -- that is what people are not saying. we paid for it for a long time. many of us are sick, we are not asking for anyone to help us along. we are not asking for the government, we paid for this. what it really is is a pyramid scheme. you have to get people working in this country so that they can pay in. it is not the people cheating the system.
on "this week," including an exclusive interview with house democratic leader, nancy pelosi. >>> now, to the escalating controversy of the use of caffeine in energy drinks and a new line of cracker jacks. the manufacturers say these products are perfectly safe. but the fda is looking into caffeine concerns. and so is abc's jim avila. >> reporter: abc news has obtained 92 of what the fda called adverse event reports. the latest of which is an october death claim of sudden cardiac arrest. the government is founding. but the founder of 5-hour is fighting back, saying his product is not harmful. some people swear by it. >> i feel more alert. i feel awake. >> reporter: others overdo it, as in these youtube videos. >> chug. chug. >> reporter: but this morning, the ceo and founder of 5-hour energy drink, tells abc news that kind of abuse is the only way to hurt yourself with his product. >> if you had ten cups of coffee in an hour, i think you'd end up in a hospital. that would really be a dumb thing to do. >> reporter: bhargava says the deaths and hospitalizations, recording to the fda bec
thing to put the guy at the very top to answer those questions. tell us about nancy pelosi and what her future holds. >> very interesting morning. if not for this scandal, that would really be all the talk, the buzz, leading up to today around the water cooler here on capitol hill. will she or won't she stay? she, of course, did decide she was going to stay for at least another two years as leader of the house democrats, and the image you see there on this screen, the imagery was kind of remarkable, suzanne. certainly we know and we have known that she has taken pride in the fact that she has -- is the highest ranking woman in history. she was the first female speaker of the house of representatives, but the imagery today of her surrounded by so many women, democratic women, obviously, in the house, currently serving newly elected women, really had not heard her hit that issue as hard as she did today, and, in fact, at one point when asked about why she wanted to stay, she sort of made a joke about the fact that if she didn't, that there would be four men around the table negotiating an
